    We should already know how the two giant carriers seem to work "together" as they dominate the wireless industry, and this article seem to solidify a lot of what weve thought.

    Does it seem any relief may be in the future where we may regain some control or breaksbin deals or options? Who knows.

    my solution: prohibit wireless carriers from selling phones . Then, require every cell phone to have removable sim card. Customers would be only able to buy coverage via monthly fee. No contracts allowed. Can switch phones or providers at will.
    All networks would be like prepaid.
    That would lead to competition among phone makers and providers for customers.

    I agree.... Seems too late though to do much.. The two superpowers own all if not most of the network resources and still swallowing up smaller carriers each month...

    Yes, Tmo was SPARED a tragic death by escaping that bad merger (or devour) deal. That gives cusumers the option to switch to better deals like TMO. I wish the servc was a little better in my aeea.

    The way I see it is like this. Humans lived for thousands of years without cell phone service. I think doubt a few slow spots will kill me.

    I agree with you there Its that I use my cellular as a 'second extension' for work. I have to do a lot of talking/facilitating and the connection has got to be clear and no dropped calls as a 'norm'. I have to give ATT credit for a job well done on addressing that global issue. I can truthfully say that I have not had a dropped call since around 2011. Until now, its my device that was an issue. Its been replaced as of Thursday 2/28.
